It was a special weekend at Jubilee Sports with black belt tests held among the autumn gradings at Melton Jujitsu.

One student was taking his first black belt grading, while another two took their Second Dan after years of training and dedication to this self-defence art.

There were also students graded for their first-ever belt after taking up the martial art this year, while many others were progressing through the ranks.

Grading officers, Sensei Craig Connell (Sixth Dan) and Dave Eckersley (Third Dan) travelled from Oldham to put the students through the moves and were very happy with the standards and knowledge.
